stayed here for one night due to rail strike in Belgium, booked through booking.com so worked out very cheap for last minute deal. This hotel looks stunning and the architecture is lovely. The building has odd shape due to this and it is reflected in the room layouts. The greeting as you arrive is less than welcoming, the staff made... More

Special hotel created from a renewed old tower. I have spent few night alone for business. It's a nice experience but the beds are of poor quality and I could not sleep well. The gym is poor as well and I could not train. Facilities shall not be poor in a 5 star hotel.

I stayed there in August because I was a guest at a wedding (the wedding couple also lived in this hotel) and I also stayed there. It is located very well within Cologne and it is an experience to stay in an old tower. However I was not to convinced with the service because they have high standards but sometimes... More

Cleverly built into an old water tower, Hotel Im Wasserturm has seen better days. The lobby area is charming, and the restaurant is beautiful with terrific service. They also offer a very nice buffet breakfast; mine was included. But unfortunately once you arrive on your hotel room floor, you can immediately see the wear in the halls - years of... More

Dear guest, many thanks that you have taken the time to value our service and achievements after your stay. Even if we could not persuade all our achievements with pleasure, we would like to get rid some words for your assessment. We know that the rooms are renovation-destitute. So in shortens the works will begin. But in an historical building... More

We have been to Cologne before, but always wanted to try this hotel. We booked a Junior Suite with marble bathroom and views of the city. On arrival, we were "upgraded" to a Gallery Suite (via SLH membership) which turned out to be one of the worst rooms we have ever seen, with a grubby bathroom and a bedroom with... More

I was told by friends what a great hotel this is. Its in an old water tower However for my taste I didn't like the circular rooms with small windows (which on my floor started below the floor level) I also found the room looked tired - the bathrooms were quite poor, wouldnt stay again

We do recommend this hotel. Location is great, close to everything yet hidden in the streets between apartments, churches, etc.. cozy! PROS: nice staff, good food (a bit pricey but tasty), not very vegetarian friendly - a few items but mostly meat, you are in Germany right! Different room lay outs are interesting and views of city are nice. The... More

When we booked the hotel we understood that it was older but clean and that was fine by us. What we were not prepared for was the complete mess the hotel was. There were water stains on the walls, chunks of wall missing in the hallway, mold on the tiles, and blood or stool residue on the bathroom wall (I... More

We stayed at Hotel Im Wasserturm based on the travel reviews and weren't disappointed. The concept is really great: I haven't seen anything like - the round structure, the room and window designs to match. The accommodations were great and very comfortable for two people. Loved little touches: boxes of little cookies, welcome sweets, etc. We did check the restaurant... More

I was very curious to see that property as I generally like the André Puttmann design style, but I realized when staying here that it is definitely outdated. The bathrooms are dark holes, the layout of the rooms not what I expected and most of the interior of the water tower is far too dark for my taste. Of course... More

Dear Eva-Maria, many thanks that you have taken the time after your stay to value our hotel. Regrettably, we could not satisfy you with all achievements what we are working for. The hotel rooms will receive in a contemporary way a new, but winning water tower look. The renovation of the bathrooms also counts to it. As you have already... More
